When you provide support for a girl or a woman it changes not only her life, but life for her family and often her entire community. She can create a positive ripple effect. She is a great investment.
A girl born in a poor community today is thrust in to the largest group of humanity to be denied basic needs and human rights — women. In some cases, her struggle starts in the womb and most often continues into womanhood. Millions of girls are subjected to difficult living conditions, abuse, child labor, sex trafficking, early marriage, lack of education and income opportunity, and other offenses because they are born into cultures in which females are often poorly valued. Your gift helps to protect girls and women and prevent the cycle from continuing by equipping skilled, local staff to offer training, education, counseling, small business loans, and other programs that reach women and girls as well as boys — helping to end cycles of abuse and unhealthy beliefs. Change her story and you change the future for all her children.
This fund supports projects in some of the most difficult places in the world* to be a girl or a woman, utilizing interlinked interventions which when addressed together create the greatest sustainable change. Interventions include:
- Channels of Hope for Gender training
- Improving child and maternal health
- Justice, rights and protection
- Improving access to education
- Job training and access to capital
- Clean water, hygiene & sanitation
For as little as $1 per day, or $30 per month, your gift to the Strong Women, Strong World fund can be a life giving investment bringing hope and well-being to vulnerable women and girls.

At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
